The Daily Express has a proud tradition of getting the weather wrong. The paper's commitment to trying to scare its elderly readership with apocalyptic weather predictions is matched only by its ability to get those predictions consistently wrong.
No wonder they were so upset on Wednesday when somebody pointed out the BBC had apparently been "over-egging a weather report" and spreading ridiculous "weather panic". The Express was outraged: doesn't the BBC know that's their job?
The Express reported:
"One BBC Breakfast viewer accused the show of overly focusing on the fact London and the South East may be hit by weather conditions which the rest of Britain regularly experiences."
That's right. The Express's criticism was sparked by one viewer pointing out the BBC's weather warning may have been a touch disproportionate.
Just for good measure, the picture the Express used to illustrate how "London-centric" the BBC weather is featured Kate Kinsella from BBC London. Now, if BBC London's weather is a bit London-centric, there is probably a clue as to why in its name.
